In case you haven't heard, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo might be leaving to take the head coach for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Izzo would be leaving the program he has built up for the past fifteen years, but the opportunity to coach Lebron James may be just too good to pass up.
Many analysts have said that Izzo would most likely stumble if he tried to coach in the NBA, citing his fiery personality as one of the main reasons.
However, as far as a diagramming a system to win in the NBA, Izzo may have the ability to conform to the different style of play.
Izzo has always preached an uptempo style of play that would be well suited for the Cavaliers.
As a way of predicting how Izzo's coaching style would translate to the NBA, I compared many players from last year's Cleveland roster to players Izzo has coached throughout his time at MSU.
